    World war 1 World war 1 Presentation Transcript

    • World War 1
    • Imperialism
      Imperialism is when countries try to expand their influence by acquiring colonies
      Countries wanted colonies so they could get new goods and sell the ones they already had
      In the late 1800’s France and Britain had more colonies than most European countries
      This made Germany jealous, they started acquiring colonies too late and only got small areas in Africa
    • Causes of World War 1
    • By the Numbers
      July 28, 1914-November 11, 1918
      Counting naval battles, happened on 6 continents
      Involved 21 countries
      38,880,500 casualties
    • Alliances
      Alliances are agreements between two or more countries that somehow benefit everyone involved
      Many different alliances had been signed between European countries between 1879 and 1914
      The Two main groups that formed were the Triple Entente (Great Britain, France and Russia) and the Triple Alliance (Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy)
    • Arms Build-up and Nationalism
      France and Germany doubled the size of their armies from 1870 to 1914
      The navies of Great Britain and Germany were in competition for control of the seas
      Great Britain created a new class of battleship, the Dreadnaught that Germany would soon copy
